    Gigantor Production Cel with Master Background (TCJ, c. 1963-66). Featuring the original giant robot that would pave the way for the popular mecha genre in anime, this is a marvelous hand-painted original production cel from the classic anime series Gigantor, known in Japan as Tetsujin 28-go. Telling the story of a young boy who controls the titular giant robot with a remote control, Gigantor captivated audiences on its release. The world had never seen anything like it, and it was met with explosive success. A rare black-and-white cel from the pivotal 1963 series, this fantastic cel is presented on a hand-painted Master background rendered in gouache on background board. The piece is framed under glass with a mat window size of 10" x 8" and an overall frame size of 15" x 13". Incredibly rare, this black-and-white setup from the original series shows minor handling wear, and the frame is sold as is. The condition is Very Good.
